No idea what his name is, but he apparently tricked stars like Keegan-Michael Key and Sarah Hyland, among others, into giving him their tickets to W Magazine’s pre-Golden Globes party.Variety‘s Marc Malkin shared the news — after admitting he, too, was tricked by the tall white male in a black suit and white shirt who posed as security on Friday in the famous Chateau Marmont hotel. Apparently the party crasher asked guests for their tickets before they went through the lobby to the elevator to the party on the sixth floor. When they got to the party, they were asked for their tickets again. Confused, the party guests said they already gave their tickets to the guy in the lobby.Well played, trickster. That guy had nothing to do with the party, it seems, and it’s not clear what happened to the tickets he took.last_img read more

Tejashwi demands Nitish govt dismissal in Muzaffarpur case

first_imgPatna: Bihar opposition leader Tejashwi Yadav on Saturday demanded that Governor Lalji Tandon should dismiss the government of Chief Minister Nitish Kumar over its alleged involvement in the Muzaffarpur shelter home rape-cum-murder case following the affidavit submitted by the CBI in the Supreme Court. A day after the the CBI informed the Supreme Court that it is probing accused Brajesh Thakur for the rape and murders of 11 girls in a Muzaffarpur shelter home, Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD) leader Yadav demanded the dismissal of the state government. Also Read – 2019 most peaceful festive season for J&K: Jitendra Singh “We request the Governor to dismiss the Nitish government after its involvement was found. There are some ministers in the government who were involved in immoral acts and such government should be dismissed with immediate affect to ensure safety and security of women and girls in the state,” Yadav said here. Yadav has directly attacked the chief minister two days before the fifth phase of Lok Sabha polls. Yadav during his election meetings on Saturday, the last day of campaigning for five of 40 Lok Sabha seats in the fifth phase, raised the issue over what the CBI has informed the apex court in connection with the Muzaffarpur case. Also Read – Personal life needs to be respected: Cong on reports of Rahul’s visit abroad He said repeatedly that the state government was involved in the case and that it has been trying to suppress the evidence to weaken the case to protect ruling party leaders including some ministers. The CBI on Friday informed the court that it has recovered a bundle of bones from an alleged burial ground. Thakur is already an accused in the rape and sexual abuse of children in his shelter home in Muzaffarpur district. The CBI has been facing severe criticism for the delay in charging the accused persons for the crime. The CBI told the court in its affidavit that it had made headway in the probe from a child rescued from the shelter home. “During investigations, from the statements of victims recorded by investigation officers (IOs) and National Institute of Mental Health and Neurosciences (NIMHANS) team, names of 11 girls emerged, who were said to be allegedly murdered by the accused Brajesh Thakur and his accomplices,” said the CBI in the affidavit. The affidavit further said that on scrutiny of details of these 11 girls, it was revealed that there were a total of 35 girls with identical/similar names who were at one time or the other staying at the Balika Grih (girls’ home) in Muzaffarpur.last_img read more

THW Kiel – With arguably the most star-studded backcourt in the history of the game, the challenge for coach Alfred Gislason will be how to keep Filip Jicha, Domagoj Duvnjak and co. all happy at the same time2. Paris Saint-Germain – After last season’s massive disappointment, expectations are somewhat downgraded for the richest club in the world, despite the addition of French Olympic champions Thierry Omeyer, William Accambray, Xavier Barachet3. HC Metalurg – The Macedonian champions will rely on the best home court advantage in the competition as they target a third quarter-final appearance in a row4. Naturhouse La Rioja – Spain’s second team added experienced players in the hope of improving on last season’s fifth place finish in the group stage5. Meshkov Brest – Back in the group stage for the first time in seven years, the Belorussian champions added a number of Balkan players with Champions League experience in the hope of being competitive 6. HC Zagreb – The eternal Croatian champions can draw on their country’s best young players, but a lack of pedigree will likely count against them in a tough groupGroup B 1. Barcelona – Having been shockingly defeated in the last two Final4s, coach Xavi Pascual and his star-studded team are running out of excuses2. Flensburg-Handewitt – The defending champions lost a couple of key experienced players and replaced them with youth, but would you count against Ljubomir Vranjes’ team after last season’s miracle run?3. KIF Kolding Kobenhavn – Experience is the name of the game for the Danish champions, who will be targeting a place in the quarter-finals at least4. Orlen Wisla Plock – Plock keeps losing games and key players to domestic rival Kielce but should comfortably make it out of the group stage5. Alingsas – Sweden’s new champions rely entirely on domestic players and do not appear to have the quality to compete with the continent’s top teams6. Besiktas Mogaz – Somewhat of a surprise qualifier, the Turkish champions are here mainly to gain experienceGroup C 1. Veszprém – The Hungarian champions have added a number of world-class players to an already strong squad, and will be looking to build on last year’s Final4 appearance and go all the way this time2. Rhein-Neckar Lӧwen – The Lions have focused on quality by letting a large number of players leave and replacing them with a small selection of newcomers headed by Danish goalscorer Mads Mensah Larsen3. HC Vardar – Having narrowly missed out on a place in the Final4, Vardar brought in experienced players and will be expecting to do better than last year4. Montpellier Agglomeration – Having lost its dominant position in France following a betting scandal in 2012, this current Montpellier team is a couple of steps below the top European sides5. Chekhovskie Medvedi – Russia’s eternal champions return after a one-year absence caused by financial hardship6. Celje Pivovarna Lasko – Having lost virtually every key player from last season’s team, the record Slovenian champions have been done no favours by being placed in a tough groupGroup D 1. Vive Tauron Kielce – Talant Dujshebaev’s reign in charge of the Polish champions started with the team crashing out of the Champions League last season, but expectations remain high for a Final4 run in the legendary coach’s first full season in charge2. Pick Szeged – Strong additions and an easy group should encourage the reigning EHF Cup winners that they can make a run at least to the quarter-finals3. Aalborg – Having lost two of its star young players to the German league, Aalborg would be happy with just making it to the second round4. Dunkerque Grand Littoral – France’s shock champions have been handed a favourable group and must improve on their last-place finish in 2013/145. Motor Zaporozhye – A run to the second round last year shows that you should not underestimate the Ukrainian champions, but a repeat may not be on the cards6.

Opinion Rural Ireland is not dead Its on the verge of great

first_img David Minton is Director isCEO of the Northern and Western Regional Assembly. IRELAND NEEDS ‘RURAL Ireland’. There’s no getting around it. We need its people, its energy, its resources, its space and its creativity. Ushering in its demise is misguided.Rural Ireland in the future could be a net exporter of energy, water, services, global technology products and ideas. It can become an economic powerhouse in its own right.We need to stop analysing our issues in isolation – rural broadband, rural transport, rural jobs – we all live in one country where our families are dispersed across urban and rural communities.Progress for some is about growth and development. For me it’s about resilience and sustainability. Rural Ireland is testament to both of these things.The label ‘Rural Ireland’To some it’s a byword for depressing economic decay, a compartment of the mind that conjures the ghosts of emigration, unemployment and the loss of hope.But, despite the impression you may get from media reporting of cutbacks to services and transport, lack of broadband penetration and a flight to the cities, my vision for Rural Ireland is somewhat brighter, more optimistic and entirely achievable.As a region, Rural Ireland is changing. It has responded to international trends and is surviving by embracing the shifts in global technology. In fact, people of rural Ireland are the leaders of this global technology change.How can we improve the countryside?Rural Ireland wants to be the one of the best places to live and work in continental Europe. It is perfectly positioned to lead development if we connect our strengths as a low carbon, green and natural economy.Like many others, I believe in Rural Ireland. I understand its capacity and it is latent. It’s not hidden — it just hasn’t been unlocked.I spoke recently to a counterpart in Norway who deals with equally peripheral issues as we do in the west and northwest of Ireland. In the late 1990s and 2000s they too witnessed an increasing trend towards urban areas.This now has reversed with their adoption of gigabit fibre to rural homes and villages. This investment has seen a stabilisation of population, growth in employment and increasing demand for property and housing.His final comment resonated with me: “We were so far behind that we ended up in front.” Norway’s western region had a blank canvas to craft a vision which it then executed. It is now time to craft our own vision.Adopt Norway’s strategy to make our countryside smartThe same principles must be adopted now to make our rural areas smart. The language of urban versus rural needs to stop and we need to grow together. Too often in Ireland the media has been of an urban centric view of growth. But are they right?Yes, figures show rural depopulation, disparity between rural and urban unemployment levels while rural areas contribute significantly less. But does that mean we should we maintain this slide? I think the answer is no and I think a turning point is coming.International trends and statistics illustrate the movement to urban and city living. But what kind of cities are we creating?In many urban centres, it is difficult to afford rents, even for the smallest apartments. It is impossible for many to own a family home. For many people, quality of life is poor. They dream of something else, something affordable and more fulfilling.We are a nation with international recognition for our innovation, and problem solving. These traits are steeped in our rural and agricultural background. One only has to look at our agri-technology sector to see our global impression.All this means Rural Ireland is at a distinct advantage. Due to our historical and dispersed settlement patterns, our rural communities are relatively well serviced. There are great schools, affordable housing and an unbeatable, clean environment. Source: Shutterstock/Federica ViolinYes, there is poor broadband and mobile connectivity, and patchy transport services that further exacerbate the distance between rural communities and markets. But there are great schools, affordable housing and an unbeatable, clean environment.Steps are underway that will fix a lot of problems and obstacles in this area. We have initiatives such as SIRO providing 100% fibre broadband to rural towns such as Sligo, Castlebar and Letterkenny.The government has committed to the National Broadband Plan to deliver 30mbps to every rural household. Electrification was not without its delays; we will get there but we need to be ready for its delivery.Rural Ireland 2.0 is possibleI look around rural economies and I see our companies and businesses moving online, trading internationally and growing their business globally. We have tech development companies trading from Gaeltacht islands.I want to be part of a future that celebrates urban life. I want our economy to welcome Google and Apple and other industry giants. But I also want to see their workers and the self-employed living next door to me in a vibrant Rural Ireland 2.0.The time to show we were smart enough to shape that future, when we had the chance, is now.David Minton is Director of the Northern and Western Regional Assembly. The One Region: One Vision Conference is being held at The Model, Sligo on December 8 from 1pm to 5pm.‘Rural communities deserve better’: Two in three IDA properties vacant>I tried to do my normal job using broadband in rural Ireland. Here’s how it went> 48 Comments Opinion: ‘Rural Ireland is not dead. It’s on the verge of great things.’ We are a country renowned for our innovation and problem solving.

Veteran prosecutor Karra Reedy will be the head of the new unit.“I tend to see these days a lot more violent cases where people are just outright being violent to animals; stomping them, kicking them and breaking their bones,” Reedy said.When we asked her why this is occurring, she replied, ” I wish I could answer that question. I think if we could answer that question, we’d be able to prevent a lot of animal abuse or violent crime on people, for that matter.”Prosecutors will partner with police, Sheriff’s deputies, the Department of Animal Service, animal control officers and the San Diego Humane Society to hold abusers accountable.The San Diego Humane Society will collaborate with the D.A.’s office on cases of animal cruelty in the city of San Diego, starting July 1.

India hails historic Kashmir rule as Pakistan China slam move

first_imgProtesters burn posters featuring images of Indian prime minister Narendra Modi during a protest in Quetta on 6 August 2019, a day after India stripped the disputed Kashmir region of its special autonomy. Photo: AFPIndia’s Hindu nationalist government on Tuesday hailed “historic” legislation to bring Kashmir under its direct control but Pakistan and China challenged the divisive move, sending tensions soaring between the nuclear neighbours.New Delhi stripped Kashmir of its seven-decade-long autonomous status via a presidential decree on Monday, hours after imposing a massive security lockdown in the state to quell any unrest.“Together we are, together we shall rise and together we will fulfill the dreams of 130 crore (ten million) Indians,” prime minister Narendra Modi tweeted late Tuesday after parliament approved the move to turn India’s only Muslim-majority state into administrative territories controlled by his government.“A momentous occasion in our parliamentary democracy, where landmark bills pertaining to Jammu and Kashmir have been passed with overwhelming support,” he added.Kashmir has been divided between India and Pakistan since their independence in 1947, and the two sides have conflicting claims on the territory, over which they have fought two wars.Reports emerged Tuesday of sporadic protests in Indian-administered Kashmir, where at least six people were admitted to a hospital in the main city Srinagar with gunshot wounds and other injuries, a source at the facility said on condition of anonymity.Pakistani prime minister Imran Khan vowed Tuesday to challenge India’s decision at the UN Security Council and accused Modi of violating international law in pursuit of an anti-Muslim agenda in India.Pakistan’s military added that it “firmly stands” by Kashmiris following a meeting of the army’s top commanders.Beijing criticised India’s decision to carve out a separate administrative territory in Buddhist-dominated Ladakh region.“India has continued to undermine China’s territorial sovereignty by unilaterally changing its domestic law,” foreign ministry spokeswomen Hua Chunying said.Pakistan and China both have long-running boundary disputes with India.Indian-administered Kashmir has been in the grip of a rebellion against Indian rule since 1989, and analysts have warned the scrapping of its autonomous status could trigger fresh unrest.Security clampdownEarlier, national security adviser Ajit Doval said in a report to his department that there was “peace and normalcy” and “no agitation” in Kashmir after the announcement, local media reported.But with mobile and internet services shut down and Kashmir virtually cut off from the outside world since the early hours of Monday, limited news emerged from the region.A traveller who arrived in India’s capital New Delhi on Tuesday from Srinagar told AFP on condition of anonymity that he had heard “intermittent gunfire” and other weapons since Monday.He said he heard soldiers shouting during the night, while government troops were deployed at “every five steps”.“My car was checked at least 25 times on the way to the airport and it took me almost four hours to cover a distance of hardly 30 minutes,” he said.In Pakistani-administered Kashmir, locals fear a new round of hostilities may be unfolding.“I can’t see the return of normalcy anytime in the near future,” said a resident there, Raja Aqeel.In Muzaffarabad, the largest city on the Pakistani side, an estimated 500 people protested.There were also demonstrations against the decision in the Indian city of Kolkata, as well as in Bangladesh.India detained three Kashmiri political leaders and a court order seen by AFP on Tuesday said they had engaged in activities “likely to cause breach of peace” and lead to a “serious law and order situation”.Initially placed under house arrest at the weekend, former chief ministers Mehbooba Mufti and Omar Abdullah along with regional party leader Sajad Lone were reportedly then taken to an official guesthouse on Monday.The court order also said authorities feared the trio could organise a public rally which is currently banned in Kashmir as part of the emergency lockdown.Criticism mounted from opposition politicians.Rahul Gandhi, until recently the head of the main opposition Congress party, said the decision was an “abuse of executive power” that had “grave implications for our national security”.Monday’s decree, rushed through by Modi’s right-wing Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) government, removed from the constitution the special status that Kashmir had held after the region was divided between India and Pakistan in 1947.The clause in the constitution had prevented Indians from outside the territory buying land or claiming government jobs in Kashmir. It also limited the power of the Indian parliament to impose laws in the state, which had a separate constitution and a flag.last_img read more

Court overturns acquittal of Costa Ricas former President Miguel Ángel Rodríguez on

The entire nation watched in October 2004 as Rodríguez was handcuffed and arrested at the Juan Santamaría International Airport as he stepped off a Grupo Taca flight from Washington, D.C. via El Salvador.Hundreds of Ticos came out of their homes and workplaces to line up on the highway or sit on overpasses between the airport and the Prosecutor’s Office in downtown San José to watch the police caravan.The investigation involved the Costa Rican Electricity Institute and French telecommunications giant Alcatel, and was known as the ICE-Alcatel case.Friday’s ruling means that a new court of appeals must now conduct a comprehensive analysis of the conviction of the president in April 2011.A court at the time found five ICE officials guilty of accepting bribes in exchange for awarding a contract to Alcatel for 400,000 GSM cellphone lines, and Rodríguez, the court said, had instigated the exchange.Rodríguez was sentenced to five years in prison, but the sentence was overturned by another court, citing the statute of limitations on the charges and errors in handling the evidence during the investigation.On Friday, Sala III justices in a majority vote stated that “Evidence 588,” known as “the Panama Evidence,” as well as three other key pieces of evidence are indeed valid and should be considered by the court in the case.Evidence 588 refers to bank accounts in Panama owned by Holding Marchwood Corporation, which prosecutors claimed were used for transferring funds from Alcatel to former ICE board members and Rodríguez’s wife, Lorena Clare.Rodríguez and all five former ICE officials will be included in the new investigation by a court of appeals.According to the daily La Nación, Rodríguez’s attorney, Christia Arguedas, said in a press release that the Panama evidence does not affect the ex-president’s situation because “it does not refer to any of Rodríguez’s actions.”Rodríguez has always maintained he is innocent of the charges.

Lawyer Edward Fitzgerald said Friday the cleric will go to Jordan voluntarily if that treaty is ratified by the Jordanian parliament.Successive British governments have tried since 2001 to remove him, but courts have blocked extradition over concerns that evidence obtained under torture could be used against him.(Copyright 2013 The Associated Press.
